Thanks for the info! When I was going through the ordeal, I was convinced it was von Willebrand's, and the med student working with my hematolagist thought so also. I did go on to have a normal vaginal birth, but had no issues with bleeding after birth. I also had a c/s the second time around (lonnng story) but I had no issues with bleeding.
I do bruise very easily, but I don't get cuts enough to tell whether or not I have excessive bleeding or not.
My DD has never been cut before, so this was my first experience with it. She's also unvaxed so I've never seen her bleed from that type of thing, but when my oldest was vaccinated, she did seem to bleed a bit more than average.
Wait a minute- I'm in a rush so no time to go back and edit- but just remembered- dd did go in for a lead test finger prick and blood draw from her vein- the finger prick did take a little while to clot (also took awhile to start bleeding, but once it did it took awhile to stop) and I remember taking her bandaid off of her arm later (from the vein draw) and I remember there being a lot more blood than I'd imagined on it.
I'm going to talk to her doctor about it- she goes in on her birthday but I'm going to check in earlier (probably Wednesday) because she's also got an ear infection that I'd like to know whether or not it's resolving.
